I get the following traceback when sorting the raw_id_admin popup for the Proxy model and then entering a search term:

Traceback (most recent call last):

  ProgrammingError at /admin/myapp/proxy/
  ERROR: invalid reference to FROM-clause entry for table "myapp_asset" HINT: Perhaps you meant to reference the table alias "myapp_proxy__asset". SELECT "myapp_proxy"."id","myapp_proxy"."asset_id","myapp_proxy"."port" FROM "myapp_proxy" INNER JOIN "myapp_asset" AS "myapp_proxy__asset" ON "myapp_proxy"."asset_id" = "myapp_proxy__asset"."id" WHERE ((("myapp_proxy__asset"."name" ILIKE '%foo%' OR "myapp_proxy"."port" ILIKE '%foo%'))) ORDER BY "myapp_asset"."id" ASC

The models definitions are:

from django.db import models

class Asset(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(maxlength=16)

    def __str__(self):
        return "%s" %

    class Admin:

class Proxy(models.Model):
    asset = models.ForeignKey(Asset)
    port = models.PositiveIntegerField(blank=True, null=True)

    def __str__(self):
        return "%s" %

    class Admin:
        list_display = ('asset', 'port')
        search_fields = ('asset__name', 'port')

class Connection(models.Model):
    asset = models.ForeignKey(Asset, editable=False, edit_inline=models.TABULAR)
    method = models.CharField(maxlength=16, core=True)
    transport = models.CharField(maxlength=16)
    proxy = models.ForeignKey(Proxy, raw_id_admin=True, blank=True, null=True)

    class Admin:

Steps to reproduce:

1) Create an Asset called "foo" and save it

2) Add a new asset called "bar" and click on the magnifying glass next to inline edited connection.

3) Add a proxy object with asset foo and port 123. This will set the proxy id in the asset add page.

4) Click on the magnifying glass again and click on the column heading "Asset" column heading.

5) enter any search term in the search input. Bang!

The same happens if you swap the order of steps 4 and 5.

Strangely enough it works ok if you sort on the port column and then search.

  • Summary changed from admin: searching in raw_id_admin popup is tracebacks when you sort column to admin: searching in raw_id_admin popup has traceback when you use column sort

After checking this again I found you can trigger this from the Proxy change list as well. #2520 looks like a similar bug.
